Two months ago P2Pnet owner Jon Newton and four anonymous commenters were drawn into a libel suit filed by Sharman Networks and Kazaa CEO Nikki Hemming.
But now it seems that Sharman Networks dropped the case for some mysterious reason
Two months after receiving a summons telling me I was being sued for alleged libel by Kazaa owner Sharman Networks and Kazaa ceo Nikki Hemming, I’ve at last received the detailed notice of claims.
Filed with the Supreme Court of British Columbia, it includes two intriguing new documents.
One, from Sharman, reads:
TAKE NOTICE that the Plaintiff, Sharman Networks Limited, wholly discontinues this proceeding against the Defendants John Newton, Interserver Inc., John Doe, Jane Doe, Richard Roe and Jane Roe.
The other, from Hemming, states:
TAKE NOTICE that the Plaintiff, Nikki Hemming, wholly discontinues this proceeding against the Defendants John Doe, Jane Doe, and Jane Roe.
Why has Sharman suddenly abandoned its claims against me and p2pnet, leaving Hemming by herself?
At this point, we don’t know, but we’ll find out when she tries to justify them to a Canadian jury of my peers at some date yet to be decided.
